One evening an old Cherokee told his
grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people. He said,
"My son, the battle is between two "wolves" inside us all.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed,
arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride,
superiority, and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity,
humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his
grandfather, "Which wolf wins?"
The old Cherokee simply replied,
"The one you feed."
A friend of ours sent the above as an email to us and after reading it a couple of times I thought how true it is.
This is not a picture of a wolf but of my parent's very spoilt and much loved dog. He is 10 years old and goes everywhere with them. I think he is dad's shadow at times.
As you can see he has a very happy disposition but he can also be very "stubborn" at times when he wants his own way - which is quite often.
